Incumbent Riley Brockington took an early lead and sailed into his second term in the council seat for River ward, despite strong opposition. He earned 55 per cent of the vote, with his closest competitor, Fabien Kalala Cimankinda, coming in with 22 per cent.
(...)After focusing on ward issues in his first term, Brockington, 42, said he now wants to “step up and see how I can contribute at the city level.” He added that he’s interested in chairing the environment and climate protection committee.
“I think that’s a file that needs a greater push, greater resources,” he said. “It’s something I said I’d be willing to pursue.”https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/river-riley-brockington-gains-a-second-term-with-55-per-cent-of-the-vote
